A Stylish Spanish Bungalow

This Spanish style bungalow perfectly combines rustic, cozy, and refined for a space that we’d love to call home. Mixing traditional elements that you expect (terracotta tiles, stucco walls) with textural and farmhouse pieces (woven furniture and beadboard), designers Intimate Living Interiors have created a home that’s classic Spanish, but updated for 21st Century life.

 

Colorful Sneakers That Give Back 

Looking for a fresh pair of sneakers that are just as comfy and conscious as they are good looking? Check out Cariuma, a brand from Brazil that makes plenty of stylish options (with responsibly sourced and renewable materials like bamboo and cork) for men and women. They also recently launched a collection with Pantone, featuring 5 classic colors perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. And the best part? For every pair sold, the brand plants a tree in the Brazilian rainforest to help with reforestation.

Abundant Arches in LA

There’s no way to describe this Los Angeles home with mentioning arches…a lot. Taking a cue from Spanish style homes, architects And And And Studio created a home that utilizes arches in just about every room, from the windows to doorways, bathroom mirrors (and even the garage door). While it may seem like an overabundance, the details totally tie the space together and set this home apart. And besides all those arches, the space features a pair of enviable and light-filled bathrooms – and an unexpected powder room right out of the jungle.

See how we tackled a space with arches in our post Queer Eye Season 5: Noah – The Makeover And Reveal.

 

A Brand Helping To Make (6 Feet) Of Space

You’re probably familiar with Simple Human, makers of some of the smartest trashcans and soap dispensers out there. But for their newest products, they focused on staying safe and keeping social distance. The Make Space collection features a t-shirt and two different tote bags emblazoned with a large graphic 6 – reminding us all to keep 6 feet of distance between ourselves and others in public. And all profits from the first month of sales will be donated to the All Clear Foundation, an organization
supporter first responders and essential workers.

An Awesome Aussie Home Updated 

While the outside of this Australian home looks like a typical craftsman bungalow, the inside is another story. It’s been updated from floor to ceiling courtesy of designers Bone Made, who transformed the 1913 house into a contemporary and clean-lined space for a family of 6. With a new open floor plan and a palette of soft grey, warm woods, and woven accents, the home feels like an inviting space that’s totally liveable.
